World Energy Consumption: The Good, The Bad, and The BTUs
: Numbers and concise summary. "If the per capita energy consumption in the developing world were to reach only 50% of that consumed by the citizens of industrialized nations, and if everyone in the prosperous industrialized nations were to conserve themselves down to that same level, energy production worldwide would have to double. .. The prevailing energy issue worldwide is how will global energy output double or triple in the next twenty years in a way that is clean and sustainable. Because even with highly efficient energy usage and conservation worldwide, that's what it's going to take for the countries of the world to stay on the course of economic growth and development that they clearly desire and deserve. Can "non-hydro renewables" provide this much energy? Maybe, but it would take a transformation in the world energy infrastructure of unimaginable speed and scope. " 10:38:34 PM
